Origin of the name TRISTRAM.
Etymology of the name TRISTRAM.
Meaning of the baby name TRISTRAM.


TRISTRAM.  Arthurian.  Another form of Welsh Tristan (q.v.), meaning " tumult, son of thunder."  From Latin influence, and sometimes rendered "sad face."  Also see Drystan.

... Trwst ap Taran (tumult, the son of thunder) was the poetical name of another of the line of Pendragon, who was called by his countrymen Drust of the Hundred Battles.  The influence of Latin upon Welsh, however, made trist really mean sad, so that it was there accepted as suited to the melancholy circumstance of the hero's birth; and Tristram, or sad face, became identified with the notion of sorrow; so that the child of St. Louis, born while his father was in captivity on the Nile, and his mother in danger at Damietta, was named Jean Tristan... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
